." hurricane sandy may be heading to pennsylvania but the damage left in its wake has been devastating. devastating snowstorms in west virginia and high waves that brought shipments to a shop in lake michigan. the damage felt at the seaside communities and jersey shore and coastal areas in and around new york city. after two days of suspended animation, wall street was up and operating on generator power, but the rest of lower manhattan remains dark, and the city subways and commuter rails which bring millions to work etch day have just barely begun to return to service. with some tunnels still full of seawater the damage will not be repaired overnight. two days after sandy made landfall emergency officials report at least 63 dead, including as many as 30 in new york and eight in new jersey. 6 million homes and businesses in 17 states without power. including around 650,000 in new york city alone. and costs to the country's economy estimated between $10 billion and $20 billion and growing. we're going to talk about the political, economic and environment implications of hurricane sandy
'm looking at the national map because of hurricane sandy and how hurricane sandy could play a role in the popular vote. let's take a look at new york and particularly in nasa county right next to new york city. that's on long island. almost a million people there lost power. the long island power authority said it could take up to ten days to restore power in nasa county. voters there went for the president last time. it's a big county and now new york city, next it to new york city where about 2 million people lost power, manman has about 8% of the state's population and in the last election it went 86% for the president. these are all blue for a reason and they were all hit by hurricane sandy. let me go over to new jersey to essex county new jersey. thousands of people still without power. that county has 9.4% of the state's total pop lair and they went for the president by 76% in 2008. so if they can't vote because of the storm damage we could see a dip nationally on the democratic side in the popular vote. now if you go back to the south and the middle of the

before the election what are people talking about? not barack obama or mitt romney but hurricane sandy. it is probably the biggest storm to hit this country, but still 12 to 24 hours away did authorities act too soon in shutting down schools, businesses, and transit systems? a case of overkill or just being smart? that's our big debate this morning here on the "full court press." we'll get back into that after we check in with lisa ferguson with current tv update. hi, lisa good morning. >> hey, bill good morning, everybody. mitt romney is moving his campaign innland. he canceled an event scheduled in virginia yesterday, and today he campaigns in iowa and wisconsin. if romney did become president we could see a very different type of hurricane response. earlier this season he said he would rather get rid of fema. he would rather second disaster relief back to the states and to privatize it. in reality taking services out of the public sector can actually second the government deeper in to debt. we have sene a little bit of that with the military contracting with the
